Generalities Gooseberries


Gooseberries are nutritious berries that offer many health benefits. The fruits are large and globular, with translucent skin that gives them a jewel-like appearance.

The European and American varieties – Ribes uva-crispa and Ribes hirtellum, respectively – are the most common types. Both are closely related to black, red and white currants.

Currant fruits are small, weighing about 0.1 to 0.2 ounces (3 to 6 grams) each. They vary in color and can be green, yellow-white, pink, red or dark purple. Their flavor ranges from tart to sweet.

Gooseberries are edible and can be eaten as is, or used as an ingredient in desserts, such as pies. Early pickings are usually tart and best suited for culinary use.

They are also used to flavor beverages such as sodas, flavored waters or milk, and can be made into fruit wines and teas. Gooseberries can be preserved as jams, dried fruit or, surprisingly, as a main ingredient in marinades.
